What we feed our kids matters!
Thanks to generous support from the Foundation’s Sustainable Whatcom Fund, Whatcom Farm-to-School has grown tremendously since starting in 2009. Farm to School enriches the connection between communities, local food producers and fresh, healthy food by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education sites.
Students gain access to healthy, local foods as well as education opportunities such as school gardens, cooking lessons and farm field trips. Farm to School empowers children and their families to make informed food choices while strengthening the local economy and contributing to vibrant communities.
Now you can buy, read, cook, eat AND give locally, thanks to Bellingham authors Misha and Vicki Collins, who are donating a portion of the proceeds from their family mealtime cookbook, The Adventurous Eaters Club, to the Whatcom Farm to School Grants Fund. Bon Appetit!
